The other night we had these darling little flour tortillas at some friends house.  She said she saw them at Target and just couldn’t resist.  I promptly decided that the next time I made Mexican, I would make mini tortillas with my press.  The silver circle below is my tortilla press and I LOVE it!  I got mine at a cooking store for $12.  {I couldn’t believe it was so cheap, but it really is a very basic tool.}  It is meant for corn tortillas but does just fine with flour as well.


Here’s the recipe I use:

Tortillas–makes twelvish, 5 inch tortillas
-Mix 2 cups flour and 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
-Mix 1 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. oil, and 3/4 cup warm milk or water
Combine these two mixes 
Cover to let rest for 15 minutes
Divide dough into balls…golf ball maybe for mini
Press in tortilla press and place on hot skillet for about 1 minute each side.  (Just until slightly browned.)

 ahhhh, they are so cute!  And taste Mexican-rific.


Even if you don’t have a tortilla press, you can still make awesome homemade tortillas.  {Just might not be as much fun!}  I also discovered Masa for making corn tortillas when I got my press about a year ago.  It’s very inexpensive at the grocery store and has an easy recipe right on the bag.
